SET THE WORLD TO FLAMES

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of Montreal’s most lyrical new bands, “Puff and the Pillpoppers” have launched their first CD, “Set the World to Flames”. The new album features forty two minutes of acerbic lyrical commentary peppered with moments of tender reflection, recorded most appropriately at their loft in the RCA building in St. Henri. The group drew inspiration for their multi-era sound from the very atmosphere of this early 20th century factory once used to produce gramaphone equipment.

Puff and the Pillpoppers are delighted with their growing popularity. Three of their songs are featured on the soundtrack of “Still Longshots”, a compelling documentary about two generations of street youth premiered on Global TV’s “Global Currents” series.

Puff and the Pillpoppers formed in 2005 when songwriter and lead singer Simon Bergeron assembled a circle of musician friends to give voice to his songs of love and longing. In 2006, when the band recruited a rhythm section, the energy got kicked-up a notch, and moved the band into new creative directions. Their music is now at once hauntingly melodic and infectiously rhythmic. Featuring the enchanting voices of frontman/guitarist Simon Bergeron and diva Caroline Daigneault, this five-piece Montreal group stirs in elements as diverse as folk, punk, and heavy metal. To sweeten the pot, they throw in an ancient Hammond organ and some vintage guitars. The album also features a guest performance by dopamine guitarist Marc-Andre Raymond on "all that I am" and "devil's stride".

SET THE WORLD TO FLAMES
Puff & the Pillpoppers
Set the World to Flames (Indie Martian)
The band name might suggest shits ’n’ giggles, but there’s little doubt that this Montreal quintet is deadly serious about their soul-punk dirges and dense, defiant rock nocturnes. “June” and “Precious Thing” stagger under the weight of the world while “Pillpoppers”—a theme song?—charges into it headfirst. Singer, guitarist and songwriter Simon Bergeron has assembled a capable crew, with a fierce rhythm section boosting up his trade-offs with singer Caroline Daigneault, who hits it out of the park a few times here. The MVP, though, is Fannie Pelchat D’Ascola, whose churning Hammond organ is a tidal wave carrying the whole thing to kingdom come. 7.5/10 (Rupert Bottenberg) Montreal Mirror
